Obama Bashes FBI Director James Comey

Comey’s October Surprise turned Democrat allies into enemies and Republican adversaries into supporters – the way things work in Washington.

On Wednesday, Obama weighed in, turning on his FBI director, a highly unusual act, rebuking his October surprise, saying:

“There is a norm that when we are investigating. We don’t operate on innuendo. We don’t operate on incomplete information. We don’t operate on leaks. We operate based on concrete decisions that are made.”

Without mentioning Comey by name, it’s clear whom he meant, wanting nothing about Hillary’s criminal wrongdoing made public.

“I trust her,” Obama said. “I know her. And I wouldn’t be supporting her if I didn’t have absolute confidence in her integrity.”

He and his former secretary of state are unindicted war crimes and pathological liars, both belonging in prison doing hard time, unsuited for any public office.

Claiming Comey violated longstanding agency policy flies in the face of its purported mandate to:

1. Protect America from terrorist attacks.

2. Protect it from foreign intelligence operations and espionage.

3. Protect it against cyberattacks and high-technology crimes.

4. Combat public corruption at all levels.

5. Protect civil rights.

6. Combat transnational/national criminal organizations and enterprises.

7. Combat major white-collar crime.

8. Combat significant violent crime.

9. Support federal, state, local and international partners.

10. Upgrade technology to successfully perform the agency’s mission.

In fact, its primary mission is protecting the interests of wealth, power and privilege from beneficial social change – consistently committing human and civil rights violations unaccountably.

Since J. Edgar Hoover’s days, the FBI illegally targeted political dissidents, communists, anti-war, human and civil rights activists, social reformers, the American Indian Movement, the Black Panther Party, among other individuals and groups.

Its tactics include mass surveillance, warrantless wiretapping and monitoring of electronic communications, breaking and entering, spreading misinformation and assassinations, among other dirty tricks.

Hillary committed numerous high crimes as first lady, US senator, secretary of state, and presidential aspirant conspiratorially with husband Bill. Comey whitewashed her email wrongdoing in July, instead of doing his job responsibly.

I’ve said before, after failing to hold her accountable so far, it’s hard imagining him changing tactics ahead – whether or not she succeeds Obama.

Criticizing him has nothing to do with diverging from FBI protocol, everything to do with an 11th hour announcement, potentially damaging Hillary’s campaign – the possibility, though remote, of turning near-certain victory into defeat.

If she loses the popular vote, winning by an Electoral College majority and Trump cries foul, there could be blood in the streets.
